WIIEKLIK ON' THE CVIUNS.
In an iitlt rv?-w in Now Voik City ree-ently . Joseph Wheeler said: "Th eliataeter of the Cubans has been somewhat inisitpri-sented Thrv are by tin means as bluet as they are painted. As fr as I linve rump t know, they arc tractable, and permit themselves to be reasoned Willi. Jt is merely U qil?stiiu (if k tinning imw to handle litem Ynii luve tft to in i ke everything plain to them and appeal tn tlicir common i'no. "It must be borne in mind that Their ways of thinking are entirely (lifT.'irnt fioiiujiirs, anil they Imik on things In an rnliu-ly different light, but once tlu-y understand that what wc intend to do is for their gond they will hardly cause lis any nimble. 'Take, for instance, tin; way the Cubans behaved before the battle of LaOjusinu. Wc had intended to have them co-operate with us, and informed the Cuban omYetsot our intentions. In consequence of some misunder standing the f.iius we expected they would place ,-it iiir ,iis;,.:il did not arrive in t i t in instead 2ou men under Gen. C' i-ii!n pin, in an appear ance, and the Inter aiinnuueed that lie was ready to go inio the fight with us, but he wanted to place his men in the front. "1 pointed out to liim that this would be impracticable, ami asked the men, for instance, if they should re ceive orders from their (ieneral to go to Siboney, and Gen. Chalice, who commanded the brigade, should order otherwise, whom they would obey, and they replied they would follow their General. 'I showed them that this would re sult in a coniK't of authority, which would do us more harm than good, and finally I succeeded in making them as docile and tractable as they could be. All they need is fair treatment and Hood diplomatic argument, and we shall have no trouble. "The administration has becq se riously considering the question of enlisting Cubans for the United Suites army, and I am quite in favor of the idea. 1 think they will make good soldiers, w ith a little training under American otlicer, and once they absorb the American soldiers' traits they can be relied upon to take care of Cuba themselves. Of course, at present, they are not fit to govern, and they w ill have no opportunity of doing so." THE AMERICAN HEN. Homo nix Farm. If Uncle .Sam owned all the poultry in America he could pay off the Sunn isli war debt the first year; and have a comfortable balance left for future emergencies. The total value of poultry consumed in the United Stales including eggs footed up last year the sum of $290,000, noo, a greater sum than that derived from any other one product, not even excepting the. wheat or mineral out- v put. jihi minu or tins immense sum being derived from the poor despised barnyard hen, and, best of all, with but a small outlay of capital and no risk along the financial pitfalls that Infest the business man's path way. The hen goes quietly along gather ing her food as best she mac, and re turning favors for the neglect she gets. Year after year the demand prows larger, and will so continue just as our country grows. There can never bo an oversupply of poultry, though there will be a de mand for a better grade, which our farmers must endeavor to supply. Good fat chickens and fresh eggs will always find a ready market nt prices that will easily pay for extra care and food. Dkiuvationof Floiiai. Names. The fuchsia was called after Leon ard Fuehfc, i famous German botanist. The magnolia took its name from Pierre Maguol, an eniiueiit writcron botanical subjects. The dahlia was named in honor of Andrew Dahl, a Swedish botanist. Lilac is lrom"lilaj," a Persian word signifying (lower. The plant was in troduced into Europe from Persia in the fifteenth century by a German travlcr named Iiu.sbcck. Tulip is derived from the Persian word "dulband," meaning turban. Ilusbcck, a German traveler, brought the first bulb to Europe in the six teenth century. Dandaloin Is from the French "dent deloin," "lion's tuotlv" A man went Into a store not a thou sand miles from here and asked If he could rest four or five hours. The proprietor who had just found n nest of new born mice in the coffee tinder told him he could and asked him why lie didn't goto a hotel, lie replied: "I am suffering with nervous prostra tion, and the doctor said gel a qui-' et place to rest and as 1 see you do , not advertise, I knew that ! couldn't find a quieter place.' And with that lie settled buck In his chair and watched tho swallows build nests In the cheese box. The man-raced crabs which swarm in tho Inland sous of Japan arc queer creatures.

Tho way In which every little town and com munity has heretofore exercised Its authority Is hurtful and accomplishes no good end. Let us deal with the disease In tho same way that we handle small pox and diphtheria. We hare bad both the last named disease In the county this year, and perhaps a case of yellow fever also.
